Time to Get Excited for the 2016 North Americans!

Samson_2016-01We hope you’re getting as excited as we are for the 2016 Samson Lightning North American Championships at the Rochester Yacht Club August 10-19!

The staff at RYC and the regatta committee are working tirelessly to put together another great event. If you haven’t visited RYC for an event, now’s your chance! It is a fantastic place to sail Lake Ontario and a beautiful on-shore venue. The pool, snack bar, and tennis courts will be open and available throughout the event, so bring the whole family.

RYC will also be offering a Kids Camp Monday, August 15th through Friday, August 19th. Don’t worry if we’re on the water late, they’re covered with Kids Camp!

We’ve got lots of activities planned including a field trip to Seabreeze Amusement Park Friday, August 12th for the Juniors and a food truck party Monday, August 15th–and let’s not forget about the daily free beer provided by Saranac Beer!

There are a variety of hotels nearby and houses for rent or rooms available with RYC members. On-site camping is also available for the Juniors or bring your motorhome and park!
